Geology Walk Event
Friday, March 8, 2013
Tickets are still available for the Geology Walk taking place next Saturday 16th March. Join expert geologist, Angus Miller, for a fascinating walk along the Fife Coastal Path between Kingsbarns and St Andrews. Learn to appreciate how events from hundreds of millions of years ago have influenced today's landscape. From rocky headlands to sandy beaches, with cliffs, boulders, rocky foreshore and fossils along the way, every mile of the Coastal Path is different and there are many clues to events of the past. There is an incredible richness in the geology of Fife's coast, with some stunning features unparalleled in their variety. Some of the sedimentary layers contain rare fossils including the walking trails of giant millipedes and scorpions. Around 300 million years ago this area was the scene of remarkable volcanic upheaval, with numerous vents firing out lava and ash. These volcanoes have left behind a complex mix of rocks and structures. Added interest to your walk will be supplied by the Coastal Ranger, who will accompany the group. His detailed knowledge of local history, wildlife, flora and fauna will contribute to make this a fantastic day out on a stunning stretch of the Fife coast.
